In addition to calling 1-800-AGE-INFO (1-800-243-4636) for information on the distributed network of aging services and programs available for our elder adult population, you can learn more by tuning in to Law for Your Life! Host Carolyn Spring recently hosted a distinguished panel in studio including Dr. Alice Bonner, the MA Secretary of Executive Office of Elder Affairs, Christine Alessandro, Executive Director of BayPath Elder Services, and Westborough Selectman George Barrette who also serves on the Board at BayPath Elder Services and on the Council on Aging. The shows discussed information, services and programs offered by the state as well as private not-for-profit organizations (like BayPath Elder Services) that work to promote the independence, empowerment and well-being of older adults, people with disabilities, and their caregivers.
